On first experiencing the photographs of German photographer, Matthias Heiderich, one might think that a trip to Berlin might be necessary in order to experience the eye candy of architecture, color, and shape captured in his work. But in reality, I think only Matthias can find those vibrant angles that make his images so striking. For the past four years, while roaming around Berlin on a bicycle, Matthias has captured the city with
medium-format film and digital cameras. Using color and composition, he creates patterns and abstract images that may not obviously be architecture or the city’s skylines. The work is refreshing in it’s simplicity and brilliant colorings.
Born in Bad Hersfeld, Germany, Matthias studied Computational linguistics and phonetics. His interest in sound extended to DJing and production and eventually a career in Acoustic Branding was forged. Music is a huge influence on his photography and album covers are a specialty. He’s also busy sharing work through his 10 international galleries and is about to open an exhibition on July 19th at the Carte Blanche Gallery in San Francisco that runs through September 13th.
Matthias also offers up some of his visual sweets for FB timelines and all he asks is a link to his website and a credit. Check it out here.
